Here's an update on this one:
G.O.A.L. (Gun Owners Action League of MA) has got the Speaker of the House to at least look into the matter.
As of right now, my wife still hasn't got hers (60 days so far), and neither has one neighbor. The other neighbor finally got his. 90 days ... when right in the state law it says, " ... in no more than 40 days ..."
My wife tried applying a couple months in advance to avoid the delays that we knew about in advance .... but they wouldn't let her!
Anyone from MA that knows of anyone in this situation, send an email to the Speaker:
GOAL Licensing Alert Update - December 5, 2012
As you know, GOAL has been getting hundreds of phone calls and emails regarding licensing delays. Some of you waited weeks just for the appointment to apply, and many of you have waited or are still waiting for months to actually have the FID or LTC in hand.
House Speaker Robert DeLeo has agreed to help us look into this matter.
At this time, we ask that you send information about your appointment/licensing delays ONLY (no restriction/denial issues, please) to Andrew Keegan, Speaker DeLeo's legislative aide.
Please keep the emails brief and polite, as their office is on our side!
You may email Andrew at Andrew.Keegan@mahouse.gov
